“Great Boutique Motel In Long Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We booked the Kearney Motel on Long Beach online, kind of taking a chance since we only had pictures to look at. We were however very pleasantly surprised at what we found when we arrived at the Kearney.

This is a very small motel located in a residential area adjacent to an industrial area by the port of Long Beach. It was easy to find (using the GPS) and it had ample parking for one car per room. The parking did require that in order to leave one needs to back out but that wasn't a problem.

The room itself (#7) was very clean and in good repair. This showed us that the owners care about their motel and about their guests. Everything worked and the TV was great. The only negative was that the in-wall air conditioner was quite loud and we had to turn it off in order to get a good night's sleep.

There are no real restaurants in the area other than a couple of fast food places and a take out Mexican restaurant that seems to be mainly used to feed the truckers from the port. We ordered a take-out meal because we were starving and it turned out to be a great meal with more than ample quantity.

Even though the Kearney is located in a residential area adjacent to an industrial area, the price was very good for Long Beach, and it was only about a 5 minute drive to the center of all of the restaurants near the Convention Center. We were attending a convention at the Long Beach Arena and found the location of the Kearney to be very convenient.

We felt that the location was good considering the short drive to downtown Long Beach and that for the price the Kearney is a great value! We would probably stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7 which is adjacent to the owner's suite and found it to be a quiet room.

Needed a place to stay before our trip back out state? Stay here around 5/30 and I was very surprised. Love this place, nice price, ok location and friendly staff. The room was very clean, smelled great and the art work was just breath taking. No more huge hotel prices for us, I would differently stay here again.

While other hotels in downtown Long beach (only 5 minutes away) were charging an arm and a leg, this small 16 rooms, owner operated hotel, was clean and pleasant at a very affordable price!
I will definitely stay again!
